Alternators

What Are Alternators And What Are They Worth?

Alternators are commonly found in cars, truck and other vehicles. What makes alternators worth money in scrap is the wound copper wire that is inside so check for the current Alternators Scrap Prices. Alternators should be brought to your local scrap metal yard or auto recycler to be scrapped when they are no longer of use to you.

Do All Scrap Yards Buy/Take Alternators For Scrap?

Not all scrap yards accept alternators so be sure to check with your yard before you go. The prices of alternators depends on the size and weight. If you are not sure where your closest scrap metal yard or auto recycler is, the iScrap App can help you find yards near you as well as their alternator pricing. If you are looking to request an alternator for your car/truck or other vehicle, you can easily request a part from the auto recyclers listed on the iScrap App.

Are Alternators Like Electric Motors?

Alternators are similar to electric motors because they both have copper windings and have steel cases on the outside. Sometimes scrap yards will pay more for alternators because of their higher copper yield, but it depends on the yard and how they do business.
